Over summer Michelle and I were at a tractor show with the 1476 and a Bolens guy offered us a cab for the large frame Bolens. So we picked this cab up and its been sitting until now. The latches were all seized, and the rear window was broken. There was also alot of rust that needed attention. I got new latches on the way and this week the cab got a fresh coat of paint. I also made a new plexiglass window for the rear.

Nice cab & glad it's getting a fresh lease on life. Just think how much warmer it'll be snowblowing from inside it...

That cab will sure feel nice to be in when the wind is whipping the snow around back at you! Nice find and it will be very usefull when battling our Wisconsin winters. Good job on saving and redoing it!

Glad to see you are giving new life to the cab. Like the folks said, it will be nice to be out of the cold when you are moving the snow. Looking forward to seeing pics of the finished job.
